Protus3 has completed a Limited Scope Security Assessment of the Public Safety Department for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth (BID-P). The project was awarded to Protus3 in November 2018.
This security assessment examined various aspects of the existing security program. In conjunction with the requirements set forth by the Joint Commission, Protus3 reviewed the Security Management Plan to determine any deficiencies and evaluate how the “culture” of the staff impacts the objectives of the program.
The site visit began in December 2018, starting with an initial review of the property layout and observation of the hospital. A kickoff meeting was held to allow administrators and hospital leadership to provide input and voice any concerns they had either about the security and safety of the overall organization or directly about the Public Safety Department. During the next few days, Protus3 met with almost all of the department leaders in the hospital. Specifics of those conversations were reflected in the findings and recommendations throughout the report.
In January 2014, Jordan Hospital joined the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center family of hospitals and became Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth. In December 1903, Jordan Hospital opened its doors to the first patients and has remained a community hospital ever since.
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth remains a private, not-for-profit hospital. BID-P treats all patients, regardless of ability to pay. They proudly serve the communities of Bourne, Carver, Duxbury, Halifax, Kingston, Lakeville, Pembroke, Plympton, Plymouth, Marshfield, Middleboro, Sandwich and Wareham, as well as numerous visitors to this historic area.
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth is part of Beth Israel Lahey Health, a new health care system that brings together academic medical centers and teaching hospitals, community and specialty hospitals, more than 4,000 physicians and 35,000 employees in a shared mission to expand access to great care and advance the science and practice of medicine through groundbreaking research and education.
